A troupe of Chippendales dancers won't face criminal charges for the "pelvic thrusts" that got them thrown in jail for a night.

Police shut down a sold-out show at Jake's Sports Cafe on Feb. 16, saying a Chippendale with his pants open thrust his hips in a woman's face. The dancers were accused of performing a sexually oriented show without the proper permits.

Several hundred female patrons protested loudly, shouting "Bring them back, bring them back" and "the City Council sucks, the City Council sucks."

The district attorney told police Thursday that the eight dancers, their manager, a promoter and a manager at the sports bar will not be prosecuted on the misdemeanor charges. City officials also said they would not pursue the case.

Scott Stephenson, owner of Jake's Sports Cafe, said he was plans to invite the all-male troupe of shirtless, beefcake dancers back.
